Mumbai: Kareena Kapoor, the Bollywood’s highest paid actress of today’s time, is the one actress whose presence is always felt in whatsoever project she slips into. Her presence has worth, which is why she is roped in a film or any project on her demands and highest fee she asks for. She is beautiful and classy actress and the audiences love her. Her marvelous acting and biggest fan following are behind her mammoth success and her top position in Bollywood scene.
She is often roped in to the item numbers and makers agree to pay her the biggest bucks since her item songs work big time. Recently Bebo was fetched into an item number for the film ‘Rowdy Rathore’ starring Akshay Kumar, and Sonakshi Sinha. The film is produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shabinaa Khan (who is a renowned fashion designer).
Kareena Kapoor and Shabinaa Khan have been good pals since long time. Their friendship oozed out when Kareena was dating Shahid Kapoor. Shabinaa turned out to be sincere pal when Kareena broke up with Shahid and she (Shabinaa) stopped designing for Shahid. Since then she has not been designing outfits for Shahid. Thus when Shabinaa asked Kareena Kapoor for an item song, Bebo could not refuse and instantly agreed. She will not charge even a penny for this song in a friendly gesture.
Well, the friendly gestures are much common in Bollywood. Often we get to know about the friendly appearances in films and songs. And these friendly appearances are often done without any monetary benefit. But after the film releases and works at the box office, we also hear that they are gifted lavish items often vehicles as token of friendship. So, do you call it a friendly gesture when the stars are paid in terms of gifts? Obviously these gifts carry the same value as their fee is – so we cannot call them friendly appearances. In Kareena’s item song for Rowdy Rathore, let’s wait and see if she is gifted post the release of the movie!
